What Am I Doing?

February 1st, 2010

Time flies when you’re crazy busy. Can’t complain, though. At least it helps distract me from the workplace doom and gloom. I’m not certain which is worse for morale: the university-mandated furlough days, or the knowledge that they will do nothing to improve our financial situation next fiscal year. That sound you hear is the tin of razor blades sliding open.

But hey, I’m doing stuff. In a development absolutely no one saw coming, I am producing an a cappella musical competition special for our March pledge drive. If that seems unlikely to you, you’re not the only one. What can I say? I’m from the Judy Garland/Mickey Rooney tradition: we’ve got a barn, let’s put on a show!

And really, this is the sort of thing that has always appealed to me about working in TV: the opportunity to do something unexpected, and do it on camera for what I hope will be thousands of people.

a Cappella Beatdown — LIVE! (no joke, that’s the title) will be coming to a screen near you (assuming that you live near me) on March 8 at 7:00 pm. Will it be a dream, or a dud? That’s the joy–and terror–of live television!
